By Lisa Riley Roche |Deseret News

The Utah legislator who sponsored a failed “red flag” law to get guns away from someone threatening to harm themselves or others said Monday even President Donald Trump’s support “doesn’t seal the deal.”

Rep. Steve Handy, R-Layton, told the Deseret Newshe’s still not sure he can get the legislation passed after Trump’s Monday speech about a pair of deadly mass shootings over the weekend.

“That didn’t happen in Utah. There’s this thing where we keep saying, ‘This couldn’t happen here.’ Really? It could happen today,” Handy said. “That’s the tragic thing about this. We want to remove ourselves.”
